Huge oasis in the middle of the city. Enjoyed the Rose Garden, the great hill walking to the pond and fountain.

Cyclists, walkers, and multiple wedding parties taking photos are part of the mix in this gracious setting which has hardly changed in 50 years. Always a pleasure to visit, well-maintained, and feels as safe as it did when I was a child going to school...More

Just a little off the Plaza is this huge park with walking or biking trails, a rose garden and plenty of beautiful homes surrounding it. Well worth the visit.

This park is well maintained and a great place for walkers to walk by themselves or bring the pets along. Higher walking traffic after 5:00pm but not congested.

Is this weekend a good time to visit Loose Park? Are roses in bloom? Also, I'd like to photograph some fountains. Suggestions on nice fountains, that are not in the middle of traffic? Thanks.
